    Hello everyone, looks like I'm becoming a regular here. Thank you so much to everyone that has helped to answer my queries. I know the answers to my questions are probably somewhere in the learning centre- its not that I don't read this section, but I find sometimes I am still left unsure of exactly what some things mean. I find that when I ask on the forums - I get clarity in a way that I understand things - so please forgive me for asking questions that you might think silly.

    I am curious about Amozon pricing of products.  What happens when there is a price change? Does the price reflecting on our hubs also change?

    What happens if your country of origin is not dollars? Do they have a forex converter? 

    Do you think that Amazon is well supported by people worldwide? I'm sure that there are many customers around the world but I'm wondering if there is still perhaps a perception that it caters predominantly for the USA market.

    Are we allowed to insert ads from other affiliate marketers other than amazon and ebay? - I have two links somewhere in my head - but I'm not sure what exactly this means - two outside links - does this apply to affiliate marketing links or to any type of link?

    Thanks greatly appreciate your input here.

      ...Amazon pricing...  What happens when there is a price change? Does the price reflecting on our hubs also change?
      We use the price provided by Amazon via their API, so yes, the price can change after you add a product to a Hub.

      See the section titled "A note about Amazon product pricing availability:"

      What happens if your country of origin is not dollars?
      The HubPages Amazon capsule only support products in the US Amazon store via their API.

      The vast majority of Hub traffic comes from the US via Google search results and as such most visitors will be in the US.

      Domains are limited to 2 links each per Hub (except for rare exceptions like Wikipedia.org for example)

      There are also sites to which no links are permitted.

      Manually inserting ads into your content could easily result in your Hub being moderated as overly promotional.

        Thanks Matthew, you are ever so helpful. When you say inserting manually are you referring to both Amazon,Ebay and outside affiliate links or just the external links not endorsed by HP's. I have inserted a number of Amazon links for lego toys as they are complementary. - so I hope it is not viewed as spam.

          By "inserting manually", I mean any ad or promotional content that is not a product in a HubPages product capsule.
          Please also keep in mind that products should all be directly related to the Hub content, and Hubs with fewer products actually can fair better with visitors and revenue.

          Product capsule placement near where an item is discussed in the Hub is also a good practice.
